Default Boost leak?

hello everyone,

Pretty new subie owner. Have a 2016 wrx with AP running MAP stage 1 91 oct. I recently placed an aftermarket intake (mishimoto). Initially the car ran fine but then my DAM has dropped to 0.812 and when I accelerate I can see my boost gauge rise then drop. Appears to be a boost leak and I wanted to ask if this can be caused by the intake. Any recommendations on what to do? I live in the bay area btw. Is there any tuners you guys would recommend? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Make your self an boost leak tester it's really easy to make most of the parts you can get at Home Depot and you will see if you have an boost leak. Have you check the vacuum hoses?

If that's the standard OTS Stage 1 map it's not intended for use with that intake.
Read Cobb's map notes and follow them. Use a stock or compatible intake and your problem may go away.

Do you have an aftermarket bov by chance or is the intake the only modification right now? I also have a 2016 sti and my GFB bov is leaking. Iíve only had it for 6 months.
